Q: When I am at AAYUSHMAAN should I fast?
A: No, only in specific programs , you fast , Fasting is a quick, powerful way to cleanse the body and help the healing process from illness and disease. It gives the digestive system a rest and the energy freed up is used to power-up our 5 organs of elimination and help kick-start the healing if you are recovering from or trying to prevent illness. The carefully designed diet of liquid nutrition at AAYUSHMAAN soaks and softens toxic waste.
Q: Is fasting safe?
A: Some forms of fasting are very hard on the system. The AAYUSHMAAN program is carefully designed to support the vital organs as the specially prepared beverages you will be drinking during waking hours ensure that your body receives excellent nutrition.
Q: Why cleanse my body of toxins?
A: Pollution in your environment, a diet of over processed foods, the pesticides that farmers are legally allowed to use to grow fruits and vegetables, the chemicals and hormones that ranchers use to induce growth in livestock are all major contributors to illness in America. Our bodies are loaded with toxic waste. Cleansing your body through fasting will restore lost vitality.
Q: How do I know I am toxic?
A: If you experience any or all of the following, chances are you are toxic and need our program:

    A. Joint pain - accumulation of fluids
    B. Weight gain / bloating
    C. Dull / aging skin (the mirror to your health)
    D. Low or inconsistent physical energy (feeling sluggish)
    E. Low mental energy (feeling mentally foggy)
    F. Frequent colds / allergy - asthma attacks
    G. Digestive problems
    H. Restless sleep
    I. Hormonal imbalances
    J. General fatigue & malaise
Q: Will I be hungry?
A: Every time you feel a pang of hunger, instead of chewing you take another drink. That is why you are asked to take a drink every 30 minutes to one hour during your fast. Remember - you are not chewing but you ARE taking in nutritional liquid meals all day long. It is easy and safe to fast in this way.
Q: I've been a vegetarian for many years. Do I need a cleansing and revitalization program?
A: Yes! Our air, water and food source (even fruits and vegetables) are tainted by mineral deficient soil and groundwater contamination. Our system needs help in coping with the natural bio waste in combination with this unnatural toxic pollution with which we are bombarded. Everybody benefits from detoxification and regular cleansing no matter what diet you keep.
Q: In the Juice fasting Program what are the liquids I will be given and how often?
A: You will be drinking every 30-60 minutes from the moment you arise to the moment you go to sleep; here are some of the liquids:

. Organic vegetable juices

. Alkaline lemon mint water

. Rich nutritional supplements

. Single vegetable soup daily

. Barley greens, Spirulina, wheat grass, chlorophyll

. Liver & kidney and blood purifying teas

. Detox powder drinks with olive oil

. Natural laxatives to regulate the fiber

. Enzymes

. Probiotics

. Power Greens or Positive foods

Q: How do you help balance my spirit?
A: It has been shown that the body's ability to eliminate, cleanse and maintain proper balance can be disrupted through problems and negative patterning. The AAYUSHMAAN program offers a variety of classes and experiences directed at balancing the mind, psyche and spirit including:
 

Healers, who work with several different modalities, offer classes and are available to book private personalized sessions to help you work on your own issues.

. Sundara prana Chakra Yoga and Structured breathing movement classes open your energy and elevate your spirit by gentle stretching and assuming postures called asana.

. Meditation is achieved in a variety of ways; through the use of sound and deep breathing to quiet the "monkey mind" that keeps us from "being in the moment".

. Breath work - an ancient method of delving deeply into the essence of being, moving beyond the ego and reaching a place where clarity resides.

. The labyrinth - a circular path used to introspectively surface challenges and release them.

. The Native American Medicine Wheel- a guided experience staged around a wheel representing the 4 directions, this technique brings balance to our stressful lives.

Q: I've never fasted before. Will I be able to go without solid foods?
A: At AAYUSHMAAN our program is not based on a starvation diet. You will receive all the nutrients necessary for your body in liquid form. In most cases you are receiving more nutrients here than you get in your normal everyday diet. In fact, because you are drinking every 30-60 min, every time you feel hungry - you take another drink. This happens from the time you wake up until you go to sleep. Our program is mild and easy to follow. Clients experience a sense of fullness and well-being through the week.
Q: I have never fasted before, what happens if I get hungry?
A: Until your body switches to "releasing mode" you may feel hunger pangs. You'll find that if you follow the program you are drinking every 30-60 minutes which satisfies the body's need for intake. If you are still hungry we can add another drink (remember the drinks are liquid nutrition so you are not starving). Since every body is different, be assured we will be happy to adjust the program to you.
Q: What results can I expect from a week at AAYUSHMAAN?
A: Commonly reported results upon departure at AAYUSHMAAN include: increased energy and vitality, increased mental alertness and clarity, your skin is clearer, eyes are brighter, and a vibrant look with improved skin-tone, and improved sleep. People also tend to eliminate their dependencies on sugar, caffeine, nicotine, and other substances, which have been blocking their body from functioning at its optimal capacity.
Q: What about classes available to me?
A: Classes are complimentary. Some classes are: Master classes taught by the AAYUSHMAAN founder Dr.Sundaravelu or one of his protégés. These include classes to simplify our understanding of the body and it's digestive and cleansing systems, developing good habits, cooking in a healthy way, organizing the kitchen and even practical healthy restaurant dining.

A: Yes. qualfied resident doctors, and Guest services Coordinators are trained to recommend the right kind of treatments to make your week at AAYUSHMAAN more beneficial and successful for you.
Q: Does a colonic hurt?
A: The truth is - almost everyone worries about it, until they have it - then they say, "it was nothing - no big deal." A colonic is a procedure where purified,regulated water is administered through the rectum into the colon. This is done to wash out accumulation of debris in the large intestine by a natural body movement called PERISTOSIS . The procedure is not painful, but occasionally a little gas can create momentary discomfort until released. There is no mess, no unpleasant odor and you are comfortably lying on a massage table during the treatment.
Q: I am nervous about getting a colonic; do I have to get them?
A: The reason we include the colonics in your package is because they are an integral part of the program. Once we loosen toxins with the liquid fast they are dumped into your intestine. Colon hydrotherapy is the fastest way to get the poisons out of your body. To get the full benefit of this carefully designed program, we encourage you to experience the entire program. If you insist on not having your colonics, it is your choice.
Q: How does cleansing my colon - help me have more youthful and beautiful skin?
A: One of the most amazing things that will happen while you are at AAYUSHMAAN and when you return home is that you'll have a "Fasting Glow". People will literally come up to you and say your skin is glowing... it happens every time. Why? After the AAYUSHMAAN program, years and years of accumulated waste have been cleaned out of the body. The large intestine can now assimilate nutrients and eliminate waste normally and quickly, so you feel younger and more vibrant and you look radiant.
Q: What happens when I leave?
A: We will send you home with a delicious and healthy green salad and a recommendation for a post-fast eating plan. This will ease your system into re-entry to your normal life. If you have been dedicated to attending Susana's master classes, while at AAYUSHMAAN, then you will know how to shop for and prepare nutritious and sustaining foods.
Q: How do I continue the program at home?
A: Before you check out the Guest Service Coordinators will speak with you about what we recommend you do and use at home. We make it as easy as possible by offering a Daily Maintenance Package for you to purchase at a savings. Most of the tools and even equipment you use at AAYUSHMAAN can be purchased for use at home.
